Every time a bell rings, an airplane pilot laughs at the implausibility of the television show Wings. Experience the friendly skies from the air instead of your TV set with today's Groupon: for $189, you get one hour of flight time with Air East Airways in Farmingdale (a $299 value).

Air East Airways shares its passion for aviation and flight instruction, granting sky seekers of all experience levels the turbulent thrill of piloting a plane. Instructors will give each student 15 minutes of ground instruction before guiding the glide over majestic Great South Bay or the Gold Coast of Long Island in a Piper Warrior II, an easy-to-operate, conventional low-wing aircraft. A rear-seat passenger pal of choice can come along for the ride, showing their support by throwing paper airplanes with your name on them around the cabin. Aspiring birdmen and hawkwomen are bestowed with an array of airy amenities, including an official logbook for flight time, complimentary admission to a first session of private-pilot ground school, and a six-month subscription to Flight Training magazine. All of Air East Airways' aircrafts are maintained according to standards required by the FAA.

Customer Reviews

I bought this coupon for my father. He took my mother up as his guest in the airplane and they both LOVED the experience! The instructor was great and everyone was wonderful to them. I definitely recommend this experience to anyone who has ever thought about flying!
